Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest Winners: Picture This

Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest winners showcase their art

by Rebecca Wallace

The Weekly's annual photo contest turns 21 this year, but it's by no means limited to adults.

As in years past, both adult and youth photographers have entered their top images: portraits, local views and photos brought back from beyond the Bay Area. This wealth of images has been judged by a panel of four photographers, and the award-winners will take their bows at an Aug. 28 reception in Palo Alto's City Hall at 250 Hamilton Ave.

A three-week exhibition follows at City Hall, showcasing the winning photos and several other entries of note. The reception is scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m., with the exhibition running from Aug. 24 through Sept. 14, open business hours. Sponsors of this year's contest are University Art and the Palo Alto Art Center.
